THE FORCE

THE FORCE
Peter Nicks (USA 2017)
 

The Oakland Police Department, notorious for aggression, brutal enroachments and sex scandals, is to be fundamentally reformed in the times of 'Black Lives Matter'. A Sisyphos-task with it's success permanently on edge. The movie observes the development of "The Force" over a period of two years. It tells the story not as a dry documentary, but as an emotionally charged and kinetic spectacle combining suggestive pictures of car chases and nocturnal infernos in downtown Oakland. "You're a warrior" says one of the instructors to his men "You have to survive".
